Ok so I'm talking to a friend of mine who is a creationist and he said so if fish evolved and became land animals then their would be a stage where they would not be able to live in either environment they would be to weak it's hard to word and I think it has tons of flaws but I cant think of any off the top of my head.

Thoughts?

Amphibians. Can't live solely in water and can't survive solely out of water.

Yes, amphibians. Use a frog in your next discussion. They are very fish-like when they are in their tadpole state. For instance, they are propelled by a fin-like tail and they breath through gills. They eventually sprout legs, grow lungs, loose their tail, and can live in an oxygen environment. This is no different than the earliest fish transitioning into the lobed-fin fish that had lungs that were modified air bladders and could could bear weight on its fins.

Amphibians. "an amphibious organism; especially: any of a class (Amphibia) of cold-blooded vertebrates (as frogs, toads, or salamanders) intermediate in many characters between fishes and reptiles and having gilled aquatic larvae and air-breathing adults." These exist today!

RE: Evolution
The creationist rebuttal to amphibians is that they are not transitional; they are wholly different species created unique by God.

Amphibians are easily dismissed.

If you want to truly stump him, show him the mudskipper. See what he says about a fish that can live on land or in water.

I don't think you mean rebuttal but ignored. They will just say the same thing about the mudskipper.
